Kurdistan: in the shadow of history is geen klassiek geschiedenisboek. Het is een unieke, bonte collage van schitterende 19de- en 20ste-eeuwse foto’s, afgewisseld met brieven, prentkaarten, ego- en historische documenten, verdragteksten, krantenartikels, cartoons, landkaarten, interviews … Susan Meiselas behandelt en illustreert de geschiedenis van Koerdistan en de Koerden van de 19de eeuw tot en met de val van Saddam Hoessein.
Rennie Ellis puts together a collection of photographs 25 years in the making from the wild and feminist late '60s, through to the techno-loving, shaved headed girls of the '90s, and much sex, subversion and more sex in between. Witty aphorisms, rhetorical questions, comments and jokes are aired with irreverant candour.

DINKA: Legendary Cattle Keepers of Sudan, by CAROL BECKWITH & ANGELA FISHER. The extraordinary images in this book tell the story of the Dinka tribe in Sudan who vary their lifestyle by season and lead lives that are very closely intertwined with those of their cattle – at their coming of age ceremony, young Dinka men are given an ox, and that ox’s name becomes a part of their own name. As it grows, they also shape their ox’s long horns into different forms.

Maasai, Himba, Hamar by Carol Beckwith & Angela Fisher Published: Tailer Experimental 2002. http://carolbeckwith-angelafisher.com/books/
MAASAI, HIMBA, HAMAR A study of ochre body painting amongst the pastoralists of Eastern and Southern Africa – the Maasai of Kenya and Tanzania, the Himba of Namibia and the Hamar of Ethiopia. Ochre is one of the most popular and striking forms of body decoration, used both in everyday and ceremonial occasions. Made from a mineral compound high in iron-ore content, it ranges in colour from the fiery orange hues adorning Maasai warriors to the rich brown shades of the Himba and Hamar peoples.

Of all the peoples in the African continent, the Surma are the most renowned for their body painting using a mixture of chalk and water and creating striking designs to attract the opposite sex. They are a group of 30,000 pastoralists who live in the remote wilderness region of the southwest corner of Ethiopia. The rituals of body painting occur during the courtship period following the harvest, once the rainy season is over.

Maasai documents the living story of the Maasai people of Kenya and Tanzania. It recounts the ancient legends, reveals the songs and prayers and vividly recounts the rites of passage for a Maasai - childhood, initiation, warrior rank and finally elderhood. The daily work of maintaining the herds, beading skirts and building huts and kraals; the warriors' games, dances and flirtations and the elders' quiet moments of contemplation.

Beth Moon. Portraits of the world's oldest trees. BREATHTAKING!
Abbeville Press | Art Books, Illustrated Books & Photography Books
Captivating black-and-white photographs of the world's most majestic ancient trees. Beth Moon's fourteen-year quest to photograph ancient trees has taken her across the United States, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. Some of her subjects grow in isolation, on remote mountainsides, private estates, or nature preserves; others maintain a proud, though often precarious, existence in the midst of civilization. All, however, share a mysterious beauty perfected by age and the power to connect us to a sense of time and nature much greater than ourselves. It is this beauty, and this power, that Moon captures in her remarkable photographs. This handsome volume presents nearly seventy of Moon's finest tree portraits as full-page duotone plates. The pictured trees include the tangled, hollow-trunked yews--some more than a thousand years old--that grow in English churchyards; the baobabs of Madagascar, called "upside-down trees" because of the curious disproportion of their giant trunks and modest branches; and the fantastical dragon's-blood trees, red-sapped and umbrella-shaped, that grow only on the island of Socotra, off the Horn of Africa. Moon's narrative captions describe the natural and cultural history of each individual tree, while Todd Forrest, vice president for horticulture and living collections at The New York Botanical Garden, provides a concise introduction to the biology and preservation of ancient trees. An essay by the critic Steven Brown defines Moon's unique place in a tradition of tree photography extending from William Henry Fox Talbot to Sally Mann, and explores the challenges and potential of the tree as a subject for art.
